Accessible to kids of all ages and abilities, great slides. We especially loved the laser harp - create songs by moving.

An impressive and well designed local park, including (very) large lawns, a floored arena for music shows, tennis courts, and multiple play structures and playgrounds. Great place for an afternoon with the kids. Also, try Ada's coffee near the library.

One of the really nice parks, they often have high school reunions on the weekends. Parking is easy, and the park is relax full.
